Here is the 'cliff notes' version of what new in the "Land of Jahn" and yes, all the links are at least pictures or something entertaining enough for you to waste a mouse click on.

I became an independent sales agent for ELAN GMK in December of 2005. ELAN GMK is a software developer of paper to PDF solutions and provides document scanning services as well. ELAN GMK is located in the sunny and warm climate of Simi Valley, CA.

On June 1st of 2007, I became the Director of Product Innovation at Magicomm, who provides its customers with a wide range of consultative services including strategy development, creative cross media multi-touch campaigns, personalized web sites, e-commerce solutions. Magicomm is located in picturesque North Shore community of Amesbury, Massachusetts.

And, yes, you heard it right - Michael Jahn, former PDF Terrorist, fell madly in love and got married to Joan who works at Northridge Hospital and we moved into our home in Simi Valley, CA

Joan's 4 children live with us - Angela and Nicole who are are 15 years old twins as well as Drummer Michael and Guitar slinger Charles

Today I purchased Harvest Moon - Another Wonderful Life - a video game for Nintendo Game Cube. As I feel I do a pretty good job at taking good care of our family, I am sure I would be expert at any video that tests such skills - but I did not buy this for ME.

I jumped at the chance to puchase this game for Angela and Nicole, as this game actually requires you to do CHORES to WIN !

LOL !!!

Basically, it is about a girl raising crops and tending animals - you know, doing the things that are essential to fiscal success in present day Simi Valley, California. To win, you need to cultivate crops, develop and nurture friendships, and take good care of your family in order to have a successful Harvest life experience. Who knew they wanted to move to a farm, be nice and find a husband ?

Now, if there were points for "waking up" and "cleaning room" and they actually LEARNED how to do this by plaing this game - well, I would invest all my funds in Natsume Inc, the company that publishes this game!

My friend A took some nice pictures of us while at a barbecue at her and her husbands business locations - LA Coffee at the Venice, CA location which also serves as the World Wide Headquarters for Java Juice - and sent them to me for my birthday!

This was the card she sent the pictures in!

Nicole and Angela, World Champions !

at least try to live ALOHA !!!

Aloha means more than “hello” or “goodbye” (although it means both).

Aloha is about mutual respect and affection. It’s warmth and caring for the sake of warmth and caring – there is no obligation to return Aloha. It’s a gift two people or an entire community share.

When you “Live Aloha,” you engage in relationships in which every person is valued and honored.

--- together, we can – and do – make a difference to the entire world.

There’s actually an “Aloha Spirit Law” in Hawaii. Legislators in this state are instructed to consider the following acronymn whenever they perform their duties:

A is for AKAHAI, meaning kindness, to be expressed with a feeling of tenderness.

L is for LÔKAHI, meaning unity, to be expressed with a feeling of harmony.

O is for `OLU`OLU, meaning agreeable, to be expressed with a feeling of pleasantness.

H stands for HA`AHA`A, meaning humility, to be expressed with a feeling of modesty.

A stands for AHONUI, meaning patient, to be applied with perseverance.

When you Live Aloha, you gain a deep sense of belonging to a community and caring for each other.

Forgetting to Live Aloha can lead to big, bad trouble.

Aloha !
